I was (and still am, I guess) so, so excited about the launch of the new CC. However, I was extremely disappointed to find that there is no local adjustments folder to add custom brush presets. I chatted with an Adobe Support rep and they said that it "may be added in the future" and to post on here.

I cannot believe that I have to post on here asking for Adobe to add a main chunk of my workflow back into Lightroom. I can't be the only one whose LR workflow is affected by the lack of this capability.

I'm very disappointed to discover that brushes cannot be added to Lightroom CC. Because it comes with integrated brushes I would have thought that would be a no-brainer. Until third-party brushes can be added, CC is pretty much useless to me.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lightroom CC: Local adjustment presets.

One of my most used tools in Classic is the local adjustment presets, such as 'Iris Enhance' or 'Teeth Whitening'. These are very useful for quick edits where the round trip to Photoshop doesn't make sense.

It is possible to achieve the same results manually, but setting the sliders every time defeats the whole concept of making quick edits.
